Re: [MirageOS-devel] Cross-compiling OCaml, Mirage OS for rumprun, OPAM integration

This begs the question, why did you use the approach of building the
cross-compiler as a normal OPAM package, rather than as a compiler package?

Because the cross-compiler needs a normal compiler (and its runtime)
to build and execute. Because many packages (from camlp4 to ppx)
depend on build-time components that execute on the host arch.
You also still have to add suffix to the version number, or else
there would be a conflict (I think).
